Use self-draining showers in hot climates to prevent the risk of shock and scalding from standing water overheated by solar radiation. Self-draining valve is situated directly above the water inlet and bleed pipe is fitted above this so hot water drains into the ground. The standpipe only fills with water when the shower is activated and drains once again when valve is closed, preventing stagnant water in the standpipe overheating and removing the risk of further injury to the operator.
The system features a specially designed, high-performance quarter-turn ball valve made of 316L stainless steel to endure the harshest environments and site conditions. Low operating torque to open valve offers reliable, easy on/off operation when emergencies occur. Valve includes an integral, heavy-duty stainless steel stop-plate to handle rough operation without failure. Low operating torque offers reliable, easy on/off operation. Durable, coated stainless steel pull handle with nylon valve connection is easy to grip and activate for immediate water drenching.
The shower includes a removable, self-draining overhead nozzle designed for high flow rates that meet or exceed ANSI standards. Made of durable nylon material, the nozzle offers optimal spray distribution for user protection. Unlike shower rose designs, this compact nozzle reduces the potential for insect nesting and eliminates high replacement costs associated with cracked or dented plastic spray heads.
Solid construction using galvanized mild steel pipework. Includes an inspection record tag for recording service and test history. Some assembly may be required.
